SCIENCE IS MOVING AHEAD AT INCREDIBLE SPEED. Technology has changed the playing field in ways we could not have envisioned 10 years back. As science becomes more complex, the need for collaboration, even across the globe, becomes more important and it becomes harder for the solitary investigator to succeed.
The old boundaries separating academia from the world of industry and business are fading away. For research devoted to diagnosing, preventing and curing disease, partnerships with industry, as well as with our patients, is a crucial component of positive outcomes. Our patients and their communities help identify needs; working closely with industry helps researchers translate their discoveries into viable, marketable solutions to those needs.
At the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, science is not just alive and well, but truly amazing. The researchers featured here, along with their colleagues throughout UMDNJ, are contributing every day to the body of scientific knowledge with the promise of improving the quality of life for our patients and patients everywhere.
